1. Requirement of the extension of hold-up time
The demand for the longer hold-up time is increasing in order to keep output voltage during the instantaneous interruption. Adding a smoothing capacitor enables to extend hold-up time (Th), and adding output capacitor enables to extend fall time(Tf).
2．Extension method of hold-up time
1) In the case of AC-DC converter
It is necessary to increase the capacitance of smoothing capacitor on primary side to extend hold-up time.
The TU series have design flexibility and hold-up time can be extended by adding a smoothing capacitor externally.
In LFP240F/300F, the external capacitor unit is available as optional parts (available only with -U1Y option).
2)In the case of DC-DC converter
It is necessary to add an external capacitor between +Vin and -Vin to extend hold-up time.
3．Calculation formula of required capacitance for hold-up time
External capacitor (Cbc) value can be calculated with following formula.
-Input voltage: 100Vac
-Output power: 4W
-Required hold-up time: 200ms
-Ambient temperature: -20ºC
